Soke seven centuries ago, two diatinct laDgua^es vera epokt^ 
throughout Eitgland, tlie Aoglo-Suon, which was that of out Teu- 
tonic forefatheTB, and coaMqaentl; one of the pure Teutonic diidecta, 
and the Anglo-Normati, one of the I^eo-Latin fsmiJ; of tongues, 
which was brought in bj the Norman conqneBt. for tome time, 
these two languages remained perfectly distinct, the An^o-Norman 
being the onlj one spoken or understood b; the higher cUssei of 
sooietj; while the lower cla9aea> and a great portion of the 
intermediate class, used only the Anglo-Saxon. Some only of the 
middle classes, more especially those engaged in mercantile occu- 
pations, were acquainted with botli. It was not until the thirteenth 
eentutj, when the intercourse between the several classes had become 
more intimate, that an intermixture of the two languages began to 
take place, and then all the educated classea appear to hiive been well 
■cqounted with both tongues. From this time forwards, an English 
writer, though using the Anglo-Saxon tongue, adapted just as mauy 
Anglo-Normaa words as he pleased,— in fact it had assamed the 
character of a language of two infredients, which might be mixed 
t(^tber in any proportion, from pure Aoglo-Korman (pure, as regards 
the deriration of tlie words) to nearly pure Anglo-Saxon, according 
to the class of society for which he wrote. Thus, as late as the 
middle of the fourteenth century, the language ot Piers Ploughman, 
which was designed for a popuUr work, contains a remarkably smuJI 
mixture of Anglo-Nonnaii words, while in the writings of Chancer, 
who was essentially a Coart poet, the proportion ot the Anglo. 
Norman to the Anglo-Saxon is very great. Much of this Anglo- 
Norman element was afterwards iqected from the English language, 
hut much was retained, and of course a proportional quantity of Asglo- 

SfixOD VM displaced b; it. Ib consequence of ttiis unsettled state of 
the Engliah langDsge, the writers of the ages of change and trauaition 
coDtain a very bige nnmber of words belonging to the Anglo-Saxon 
as well Bs to tbe Anglo-Nornuui, wbich an no longer contBined in the 
English tougne. 

Such was the first pTocess of the fonnation of the English language. 
Tbe limitation of the Anglo-Nonnan element seems to have taken 
place in the fifteenth century, when a considerable portion of the 
Anglo-Norman words used bj previous English writers were rejected 
from the English Isjignage, and were never seen in it again. But as 
these disappeared, the; were sucoeeded bj a new class of intruders. 
The scholastic system of the age of the Reformation, had caused a 
verj extensive cultivation and knowledge of tbe Latin language, and 
it is probable that the great mass of the reading public at that time 
were almost aa well acquainted with Latin as with their own mother 
tongue. In consequence of this universal knowledge of LaUn, the 
writers of the sixteenth century, without aoy sensible inconvenience, 
used just as many liatin words as they liked in writing English, 
merely giving them an Englisli grammatical form. Tbe EngUah 
language thus became suddenly encumbered with Latin words, nntil, 
at tbe end of the sixteenth century and beginning of the seventeenth, 
the practice of thus using Latin words was carried to such a decree 
of pedantic affectation, that it effected its own cure. A popular 
writer of this period, Samnel Rowlands, in a satirical tract published 
in 1611, under the title of " The Knave of Clubbs," has the foUowing 
lines upon this ^hion, which had at that date reached iti culmi- 
nating point : 


As on the way I Ilenented, 
A Rurall person I Obviated, 
Interrogating time'i Trsntitation, 
And of the piiiige DemoDitration. 
My apprehension did Ingeaiona ican. 
That he was meerel; a Simplitian, 
So nhen I san he nai Extravagant, 
Unto the obscure vulgar Consonant, 
t bad him vanish most Promiscuoutlr, 
Aiid not Contamiaaie mj company. 

A few of these Latin words have held their place in the langnago. 

bit OHT writers, from the latter part of the fifteenth centurj to tht. 
middle of the seventeenth, abound in words adapted from the Latin 
which modem English dictiooaries do not recogoizc. 

From these and other canses it happens, that of a very Urge 
portion of English literature, one port would be totally unintelligible 
to the gener&l reader, and the other would present continnal difG- 
cnlties, without a dictionary especiallj devoted to the obsolete words 
of our luignage. It is the abject of the volumes now offered to the 
public, to famish a coinpendiaas and useful work of this kind, which 
shall contain the obsolete Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman words 
used bf the English writers of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, 
man; of the obsolete Latin words introduced in the sixteenth and 
seventeenth centuries, as well as words which have been adopted 
tempotarilj at various times according to prevailing fashions from 
other languages, such as French, It^an, Spanish, or Datch, or 
which belonged to sentiments, manners, customs, habits, and modes, 
that have existed at particular periods and disappeared. 

There is another class of words, forming at least an interesting 
portion of the English language, and commg especiall; within the 
objects of a work of this kind, those of the provincial dialects. There 
ran be no doubt that the peculiar characteristics, or, we maj say, the 
organic differences of dialect, are derived more or less from a diversity 
ot tribe among the Anglo-Saxon settlers in our island; for, as far as 
our materials allow as to go, we can trace these diversities in Anglo- 
Stion times. As, however, during the middle ages, and, in foot, 
down to very recent timea, the intercommunicatioo between different 
parts of the country was very imperfect, progress, of whatever kind 
VBs by no means uniform throughout the kingdom, and we find in 
the provincial dialects not only considerable numbers of old Anglo- 
Saxon and even Anglo-Norman words, which have not been pre- 
served in the language of refined society, and which, in many cases, as 
fu as r^ards the Auglo-Saion, are not even found in the necessarily 
imperfect vocabulary of the language in its pure state which we are 
enabled to form from its written monuments i but also numerous 
words, in general use at a much later period, but which, while they 
became obsolete in the English language generally, have been pre- 
KTved orally in particolar distiloti. The nnmbei and character of 

D,mi,.=db, Google 


tbete words is vetj remarkable, and iostancM vill be oontiniull} 

found, in the following pages, where a word which is now considered 
as ^pecoliarl; oliaracteristio of tlie dialect of some remote district, 
occurs as one in general use among the popular, and espedallj tbe 
dramatic, writers, of the tge which followed the Restoration. 

Words of this descriptioD are a necessary part of a dictionary like 
the present, and they have been collected with as mnoh care as possi- 
ble. On the other hand, the mere oi^^c differences oF dialect, as 
well as the differences of orthc^raphy in words at found in different 
medieval numnscripts and eariy printed books, have been inserted 
sparingly, as belonging rather to a Comparative GraQinmr or to a phi- 
lological treatise, than to a dictionary. In fact, to give this class of 
variations folly, would be simply to make a dictionary of each parti- 
cular dialect, and of each medieval manuscript, and to combine these 
alti^ether, whioh could not be done within any moderate limits, and 
if done, with regard to the manusoripts especially, the fltat new 
manusoript that turned up would only show its imperfection. It bas, 
therefore, been considered advisable not to insert mere orthographical 
variations of words, unless where they appeared for some reason or 
other sofflcientlj important or interesting. There are, moreover, 
certain letters and combinations of letters which are in the older 
forms of the English language interchangeable, so that we constantly 
find the lune word oocurring, even in the same manoscripl^ under 
two or three different forms, none of which ure to be regarded as 
corraptions. To insert all these forms, would be to increase the 
dictionary twofold or threefold, for the words in which those letters 
occur, without any proportionate advantage ; I have tberefote in 
general given the word only under the form in which it occurs most 
usually, or which seems most correct ; but, to facilitate the reference, 
i add at the end of this preface a list of the more common inter- 
changes of this kind, so that if a word be not found under one form, 
it may be sought for under another. 

Various and indeed numerous glossaries have been already pub- 
lished, both of provijcial and of Archaic Gnglish, but most of them 
have been special rather than general. We may mention among these 
the valuable work of Archdeaoou Nores, which, however, was de- 
voted only to the writers of a particular period ; the extensive under- 

taking of Boucher, vhicb wu not continneil bejond the Utter B ; uid 
tbe Domeroua glossaries of parljonlar dialects, among vhioh one of 
the last and best is thai of Northamptonshire by Miss Baker. The 
"Dictionary" bj Mr. Halliwell, when we consider tliat it was almoHt 
new in ita class, «nd tbat the author had man; difficulties to ooq< 
tend with, which would not, perhaps, have existed now, was in every 
respect an extraordinary voA. 

In compiling the following page^ I have taken all the advantt^ 
I could honestly of the labours of m; predeceisors, in addition 
to a large quantity of original nuriierial which was placed in 
m; hands, and I have added to this nnmerous collections of 
my own, especially from the dranialic and popnlar writers of the 
latter half of the seventeenth century, and of the earlier part of 
the eighteenth. I have also profited by lists of local words com- 
mnnicated from varions parts of the kingdom, and among those who 
have contributed iu this manner, I hare especially to acknowledge 
the services of the Hev. £. Gillet, of Euaham, in Norfolk. To 
make such a work perfect is impossible ; but I hope that, on tlte 
whole, the present will be found one of the most geneisUy useful 
works of the kind that has yet appeared.

inrtimi; and the term occurs in 
levenl of our writers sbont Eliza-

of the word, bat not so applicable. 
We sometimes see and hear ilovn, 
bloated, and puffed up, in nearly 

the same sense. I hale heard 
OUT blown-herrings called bawen 
herrings, and bone -herrings, but 
never any good reason for so 
calling them. Hmm is another 
sense of blown or puffed up, 
but never applied to a herring. 
Since the above was vmtten, I 
have seen (October, 1823) in a 
shop in Great Russell Street, a 
parcel of ifoicn-herrings ticketed 
' fine Yarmouth bloaters.' 1824, 
in the autumn of this year, hear-

of Tow Bowen herrings, I learned
